Kvarken Archipelago

Kvarken Archipelago

Kvarken Archipelago, Finland

The reason to visit Vaasa was to take in the nearby Kvarken National park, an area where the landscape shows  signs of post glacial rebound. Since the compression of the last ice age the ground is now returning to its original position and that is happening here along the Finnish coast. In 2006 Kvarken National park became Finland’s first UNESCO World Heritage Site.
